About Me

I recently returned home after couchsurfing a lotttt in Europe and want to pay back the kindness so many hosts showed me.

In general......

I believe travelling is more about the people you meet rather than the places you see. So wherever I can find an interesting couchsurfer I go!

I'd love to write more about me here but then it ruins the conversation for when we actually meet! It's better to meet up, grab a drink and chat.


Language and linguistics, politics, international/humanitarian law, art, photography, history, geography, tea, sci-fi, amphibians and herpetology in general, and of course travelling.
